    I found this battery online when searching for an extended battery. The good thing about this one is that it is the exact same size as the stock battery and it doesn't add any bulk to the phone. I'm wondering though if it's safe to use it? The article says it extends the battery by 6%.

    Yea, a $50 battery isn't really worth it. I was just intrigued because it didn't make the phone any bulkier. There's a battery like the one in the youtube video below which I think makes the phone super ugly. lol. But that battery is 5200mah so i guess it's to be expected.

    I have used Mugen batteries before and they performed just fine. I had a extended battery and back for my OG international Note a while back.

    I have an Anker 5600mah extended battery and 2 Anker 2600mah Batteries
    As badly as I wanna use the 5600mah, they don't have cases compatible with extended batteries, so I am gonna hold it as an emergency battery until they have cases available

    From one one of the reviews on Amazon for the Anker 2600 battery.

    " This battery has to be the best one so far. The Anker 2600mAh for the S4 has incredible battery life and lasts about 50% longer than that of the OEM Samsung battery. "

    Oh really now?

    I really like extended batteries that fit under the standard door. But at 2750mAh that's not enough to justify the price. I'd rather have a pair of extra batteries for that money. I've had good luck with Seidio in the past.

    You don't need a case unless you're hard on phones.

    150 extra mah seems to stretch the term "extended".

    Guess that just goes to show that Samsung already puts almost as much capacity as will fit in the space taken up by the standard battery.

    I had the 2300mAh unit for my S3 and after a few days the battery stopped charing to 100% (86% or something). Mugen did take it back after a few emails but they also removed my review from their website which seems a little shady.

    That is so silly I had to read again to make sure I read right the first time. That person is a plant, or believes wrestling is real. Probably both.

    It's possible the reviewer received a faulty OEM battery with their S4.

    I know it's an old post but just wanted to say I got the Anker 2600mAh battery for Samsung galaxy s4 for $5 shipped on ebay. Just search Anker 2600mAh samsung galaxy s4 and the one that's $7.97/make offer, I offered $5 first time so might be able to get it cheaper. Just letting others know.

    I looked on Ebay for extended batteries and do not believe the claims made by most of the sellers. They could squeeze a little more out of the same size battery but 4000 Mah and 6500 Mah is just not possible. If you click on the sellers name and look at the feedback you will find a lot of NEGATIVE FEEDBACK refuting the claims of battery life!

    I have used Extended batteries before with a larger back. They work well if you need the extra talk time. You have to use an oversize case for the phone and I never found a skin or protector for the phone that would fit! It seems the extra size battery and weight make the phone easier to hold!
